What is a DSE Assessment?

A DSE (Display Screen Equipment) assessment is a report required by law to identify and remove the risk of Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI) to computer equipment users at home & in the office.


Your assessment gives recommendations, in line with HSE Guidelines to help prevent workstation related injuries, such as Back pain, Neck pain, Wrist pain & other musculoskeletal disorders from leaning or stretching to use your laptop. An essential  service for home workers.

The benefits of an assessment

  • Minimise the risk of RSI to your staff

  • Reduce absence from RSI related injuries

Just a quick note to say that, taking on board the recommendations made from the assessments meant we had a cost effective solution to offering the best and safest workstations for our home workers. Our assessor Andrew went one step further and gave one of my team members a one-to-one call with suggestions for various desk exercises to keep her active throughout the day, which was shared with the team and we now all practice. Great work.
